Love this podcast, but for the baseball

This podcast is great if you are remotely interested in the TV industry. The hosts are great and a good balance I think. However, unless we’re talking about A League of Their Own, I do not want to hear a single word about baseball. I don’t know who the crossover audience is but it’s not me.

The best

This is the best podcast about television, from the business and critic’s perspective, that is available.

Please Stop Talking About Baseball

I love this pod. I look forward to listening to new episodes every Friday morning. It’s the perfect podcast for television lovers — but please (please) stop talking about baseball. There is a time and a play for that, brothers and sisters. That time or place is not here (please).
